1. Just get STARTED! A lot of people think you need to have all of your "ducks in a row" in order to start a business, but thats not true! The most important part is that you start somewhere. Even if you start small. Don't let perfectionism stall you from beginning your new career.
2. Have a budget in mind. Before leaving your 9-5, have a proper savings in place. Be realistic and write down how you will manage paying your bills the first few months of entrepreneurship.
3. Make use of free resources. There are a ton of free options on how to get a head of the game. Find free e-courses to perfect your craft , sign up for free webinars, and listen to podcasts that are focused on the industry that you're trying to get into.
4. Get a clear understanding of your brand. The biggest mistake most people make in establishing a brand is not sticking with your brand values and fail to create content that will help establish the right audience for your brand.
5. If you're not a designer then get one! A budget friendly one, of course. Good designs will get you further in the long run.
